A hard-hitting Scientology documentary faces the axe from UK TV screens because of Northern Ireland's archaic libel laws.

Controversial HBO expose Going Clear makes allegations of abusive practices at the religion's US headquarters.

It was due to air in the UK earlier this month to coincide with its American release.

But it has emerged the programme was pulled by Sky because of fears it could face legal action under our stricter libel legislation.
